Germany: 31.5 MW PV park completed


The plant, built across 40 hectares on a former military airfield, was said to be ready for operations before the September 30 deadline, meaning it is eligible for a feed-in tariff. While SunEnergy acted as project developer, Renerco was investor and EPC contractor.

Over a period of 55 days, 130,000 photovoltaic modules were said to be installed at the airfield. They are expected to generate enough energy to power around 7,600 homes. The official inauguration ceremony was held on October 13.

"As soon as the explosive ordnance disposal services had finished their job, the next team was on the spot to ram the foundations for the sub-structure," commented Edgar Gimbel, Renerco’s construction manager.

SunEnergy Europe’s CEO, Hartwig Westphalen, added, "The cooperative forces of investor Renerco Solar, the companies involved in the construction itself, as well as the public sector were highly professional and effective."
